I have been the biggest fan of Gayathri's Cook Spot forever!!! And to have Gayathri herself do a guest post for my Cooking With Kin series is so cool! :-D Her recipes are egg-free, just the way I like it. She's already worked out many egg substitutes successfully! Go on.. have a look at her recipes.
She sent me two recipes & I'm posting them separately. Watch out for the side-dish ...
When Kavi asked me to do a guest post, I was very happy and accepted immediately. The name of the event was interesting. Cooking with Kin is a series and will feature many bloggers. As a friend and fellow blogger I was very happy that she remembered me. After seeing her blog and her recipes and stepwise pictures, I thought Kavi was a great mom. (Kavi says: Jeeze!! Embarrassing! :D) Then when I read about her, I had to pinch myself because she is a college student doing her CA. Her recipes are easy to follow and her snaps are great. Here are two recipes which I prepared specially for her. We had it for our breakfast and we enjoyed it a lot. Though my daughter didn’t take the gravy, she was so happy with the poori. I saved some dough to make her pooris for dinner also. The addition of poppy seeds and milk in poori dough gave a nice flavor and the pooris were so light and fluffy. When the dough is prepared in the correct method, the poori doesn’t absorb oil.
Khus Khus Poori
Khus Khus/ Poppy Seeds-3tbs
Oil-For Deep Frying
- In a bowl, add flour, salt and mix well.
- Soak khus khus in warm milk for 15minutes and add it to the flour mixture.
- Add enough water to make firm dough.
- Knead the dough for 5-10minutes until it becomes smooth and soft.
- Divide the dough into lemon sized portions and roll each portion into a ball.
- Heat oil in a pan.
- Roll out each ball into a thin disc applying little oil on the board and pin.
- When the oil is piping hot, drop a disc and with the help of ladle, immerse it into the oil.
- It will start puffing up.
- When fully puffed, flip it to the other side.
- When the bubbling of oil stops, remove the poori from oil and drain on a tissue paper.
- Serve hot with Peas and Palak Masala or any other side dish.
